We wish to thank all our parents who attended the AGM on Wednesday. We also wish to thank the parents who stayed for the viewing of “Screenagers”. Our school is a committed partner, together with our parents, at helping families through the many modern obstacles and changing environments for our children. We are continually striving to help students manage the challenges of growing-up in a completely different social, emotional, and digital age than previous generations. Again, if any parents wish to have additional resources for dealing with these new challenges, please contact our teachers or the school office.
